A lot of the focus on yesterday’s union thuggery involves the attack on Steven Crowder and the AFP tent.

But I just saw this disturbing headline: ‘Union Thugs’ Destroy Hot Dog Stand of Alleged Romney Supporter During Protest and Taunt Him With Racial Slurs. Going after a man who operates a hot dog cart is about as low as it goes, and while I’m especially busy with other stuff, I feel compelled to write a post.

A man running a local hot dog stand in Michigan’s state capital was among those attacked by protesters of the state’s “Right to Work” legislation while he served food in a tent that was torn down yesterday. The man was also allegedly taunted when he tried to salvage some of his property.

During Tuesday’s protests — the day Gov. Rick Snyder signed into law what he said is “pro-worker” legislation — the equipment Clint Tarver uses to run Clint’s Hot Dog Cart and Casual Catering was destroyed by people some have called “union thugs.”

According to the Lansing State Journal, Tarver was hired by the pro-Right-to-Work group Americans for Prosperity to serve hot dogs in the tent. TheBlaze reported about the tent’s destruction Tuesday — and how protesters were reportedly cutting up and distributing pieces of it as “souvenirs.”

Some of Tarver’s equipment used for his business were collateral damage in the protests. He recounted to the State Journal that he was trying to salvage some of it, but a friend of his told him “you gotta get out of here.”

“So, I crawled out of the tent as they cut it. My tables were being spilled and stepped on. It was all just destroyed. I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing and seeing,” Tarver said, according to the Lansing State Journal.

Fortunately, people have taken up a collection for him, and you can donate here.

(I just did.)
